Description

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Hamilton - 'Neston'

We have two Units a Garden Unit and a Pool. All units sleep 2. Full kitchens

'Neston' is on 2 acres of property, located in a very quiet and secluded neighborhood.

Enjoy the Beautiful Views of Harrington Sound one of the most Beautiful inlets in Bermuda.

Harrington Sound is a wonderful inland lake in Bermuda surrounded mainly by Hamilton parish and Smiths parish. There is a small narrow inlet that connects this lake to Atlantic ocean, known as the Flatts inlet.

The water in this lake mostly flows in through the underwater caves and subterranean passages. The sound has been named after Lucy Harrington, a lady from the Elizabethan days who did a lot for the Parish.

Harrington sound has many small islands in it like the Trunk island and Rabbit Island. Some of them are inhabited through out the year.

The water area is excellent for activities like swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, windsurfing etc. Although there are many types of fish that you can find here, over the years the population of shell fish like the scallops have been steadily decreasing.

The Large Studio makes you feel at home, away from home. The Kitchenette features refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, pots pan and utensils. Daily cleaning and linen service can be available at a price.

There is an ample supply of towels for both the beach, pool and bath.

A King-size bed accommodates two. Internet service is provided FREE so that you can stay in touch with others, or your office. Flat Screen Television and Telephone.

'Neston' is in walking distance to the Beach, or catching the Bus. It is about 5 min away from two of Bermudas' BEST attractions, the Aquarium and Zoo and the Crystal Cave.

If you desire a mixture of relaxation and quietness than 'Neston' is for you.

If our Calendar indicates that it is booked, check with us as we may be able to accommodate you in our Garden Unit.

About Wayne Furbert

I am a Certified Public Accountant, Former Government Minister of Tourism, and currently Member of Parliament here in Bermuda

Wayne Furbert purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Wayne Furbert chose Bermuda

The property is located in one of the most beautiful areas in Bermuda on just under 2 acres. We have had great reviews over the years. The last review was 2011 because someone loved the house so much, that they rented the whole property from April 2011 - March 2013.

What makes this apartment unique

Many mornings you can wake up and look at the Ocean - Harrington Sound, which is an inlet in Bermuda, the water is very calm, like glass and crystal clear. You can exercise and walk around the property. It is very peaceful and quiet. You can swim in the pool or off our dock in the ocean.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We really enjoyed staying at your home and on your fabulous island. I really hope we can find the resources to come over again in the not too distant future.

Neston Place - Bermuda

  • 5 of 5

We loved, loved our recent stay. The property had fabulous views. It is located in between both St. George and Hamilton. We rented a scooter to get around the island. The house had a nice large pool. The Poolside Unit studio was a perfect size with plenty of room and nice breezes. We only used the air conditioner one afternoon. We sat on the porch every morning and night. We had the use of Kayaks at our disposal as well. We used the grill by the pool for dinner a couple of nights. There were 2 rain ponchos in the closet which we unfortunately had to use, but it was a great touch to have those available to us. The owner of the property, Wayne, was super nice and helpful during our entire stay. We so enjoyed talking to him and learning more about Bermuda, its history, its politics and it's people. His family was very nice and helpful as well. We only wish we could have stayed longer. We were so sad to leave after having stayed a week. We will MOST DEFINITELY return - one of our best vacations EVER!

My only suggestion would be to bring paper plates, bowls, cups and utensils if you plan on eating a lot at the property, (which we did), and don't want to wash dishes. The unit itself had minimal silverware and dishes. There is a grocery store, pizza place and gas station very close to the property as well.

A Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent a week as guests of Wayne and his family in May 2016. It could not have been more perfect. The setting is beautiful, overlooking Harrington Sound. Each morning we would take our coffee to the Adirondack chairs and relax watching the water in the bay. Then the question was, swimming in the pool or in Harrington? The location in Hamilton Parish put you a short distance from St. George's, the aquarium and the Crystal Caves. Hamilton and the South Shore beaches were only a little farther.

We had the pool unit, with its king-size bed and kitchenette. It was perfect for our needs. A full-size grocery store was only minutes away, and we ate our breakfasts at home, and packed our beach lunches, saving a great deal of money. Wayne or his son were available to take care of any minor question or problem.

Leaving was painful, but we plan on returning soon. Highly, highly recommended.

A gem in Bermuda

  • 5 of 5

Having been to Bermuda twice by cruise ship, our stay at Neston was a new and wonderful experience. Our accommodation was clean, provided private and spacious living space with beautiful views of the pool area and Harrington Sound. There is a grocery store and gas station conveniently located not too far away. The property is not on a main artery of traffic, but that is a great feature for quiet and relaxation. We rented scooters (which were dropped off and picked up from the property) and travelled all over the island to truly capture it's beauty and experience the hospitable locals that can never do enough for you. Now to Wayne Furbert, our homeowner...what a wonderful and caring gentleman. He was waiting at the front step for us upon our arrival. After settling in, he offered to take us to the grocery store and patiently waited for us and returned us back to the property. I am sure this resulted in him being late for his meeting, but not one word of complaint or even mention. Later that night he recommended a restaurant and even dropped us off. Wayne went above and beyond with his kindness, knowledge and hospitality. Always ready and willing to help with a question or recommendation when asked. I look forward to a return to Neston and Bermuda. We had a great holiday that will not be forgotten. I highly recommend this property for a relaxing vacation...beautiful property, hospitable host, warm sunshine, sandy beaches, friendly locals and the beauty of Bermuda...how can one go wrong?

Michelle & Pierre

  • 5 of 5

We came back 30 days ago and Bermuda is still very much on our minds. Neston met all our expectations, even beyond! Clean, a large bedroom with a King Size Bed, a reasonably well-equipped kitchen, a pool and Harrington Sound steps away. You may use a kayak and reach an island with a nice little beach right in front of the property. This rental is a calm, quiet and serene place with beautiful surroundings and well-kept grounds. Most of the time there were just the two of us in the pool. Imagine yourselves in it, nursing a drink, watching the rise of a full moon through the leaves of palm trees. No noise, just the warm breeze and those whistling frogs... absolutely romantic! A 10-15 minute walk leads you to a grocery store and a very efficient public transportation system. Even though this mode of transportation was very acceptable we will rent a scooter next time. What is written about 'dangerous scooters' on the Internet may be somewhat exaggerated in our opinion. The owner, Wayne (family included), went out of his way to provide information and tips. He even drove us around during a torrential downpour. The 'bermudian way' Wayne kept saying! Discreet but present when needed, a nice, funny and witty fellow. We got along well. Frankly, and we travelled quite extensively, we rarely dealt with so friendly, helping, kind, polite and good humoured people. The plates on vehicles state BERMUDA - ANOTHER WORLD. True, it says it all. We experienced it. We will come back... don't know when, but we will. We strongly recommend this rental. Thank you so much Mr. Furbert for this lovely sojourn. Québec's official motto is JE ME SOUVIENS - I remember. Not exactly the same context (!) but we will certainly remember this holiday!

Best Yet

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have been to Bermuda a few times now and we always get a rental for our trip. This was our favorite rental by far and the first that we will stay at again. We always felt welcome and the property is beautiful. Wayne, the owner, is a fantastic host--friendly, helpful and relaxed. After a day of snorkeling and lounging on gorgeous beaches coming back to the house was always a pleasure. The pool, view and dock with kayaks were a big bonus! I highly recommend this rental.

beautiful property and wonderful people

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Neston was very homely. Mr. Furbert and his family are very friendly and hospitable and helpful. They took us to rent our scooters and helped with booking taxis.

The property is beautiful! Our room was spotless and having the kitchenette and fridge was very useful. Our favourite thing to do was walk down to the dock and sit by the water.

Having the scooter was very useful as the main road is a at least a 10-15 minute walk. There is a great grocery store and gas station close by.

We went to Hamilton and south shore beaches multiple times during our stay. St.Georges is also only a half an hour ride away. Anywhere you need to go in Bermuda is only a half an hour ride from Neston. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone visiting Bermuda.

The only minor issue we faced was the the air conditioner seemed to be under powered. But as we visited in May, it was still very pleasant and we didn't face any discomfort.
